About a week ago, i ordered a new set of wipers off ebay for about €20.
My old wipers had probably never been replaced.. and the car is 7 years old..
Apparently, wipers are supposed to be replaced every year, i didn’t know that. But here in Ireland, wipers get a lot of use – all year round
Anyway, my windscreen was filthy with grime and crap… the wipers were starting to squeal and leave marks and in heavy rain, they were quite frankly, dangerous.. normally i wouldn’t venture too far, but with college coming up i figured i better get things sorted as i’d be driving 2 hours per day every day in all sorts of conditions..
So today i fitted the new set (suprisingly easy to fit, just clip on and off), and already i’ve seen a huge difference I also mixed a jug full of water and added a bit of distilled vinegar, i got a sponge out and gave inside and out a good scrubbing.. i then poured whatever was left over all over the windscreen..
I then dried it all off with black and white newspaper. I got a tip off the net somehwere that vinegar, water and black and white newspaper is as good as any bottle of cleaner out there so i thought i’d give it a try.. Apparently vinegar and water also keeps your windscreen from frosting over..
The stink of vinegar was unreal 😆 But it worked! My windscreen is super clean now.. no marks, no grime, nothing.. good as new..
